Southern Visitor

I’ve been keeping tabs on the manatee that has been hanging around in the waters of Cape Cod for the last few weeks. The Cape Cod Times is doing a nice job of informing those interested on its whereabouts and status. This video by the Dennis Selectman shows some lovely footage of the algae-covered creature.

The species has managed to stay around all these years despite being pretty slow and dumb and requiring an extremely specific habitat that just so happens to overlap with ridiculous Southern recreational boating yahoos. You can’t help but cheer for them.

Sad end to the manatee story. He died during transport to Sea World in Florida this weekend. A memorial plaque is planned for the funny looking critter that captured a lot of Cape Cod hearts.
